Stag's Leap Wine Cellars sold

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, one of Napa Valley's best known wineries, has been sold to a partnership of Italian winemaker Marchese Piero Antinori and Ste Michelle Wine Estates, Washington State's largest wine producer.

Stag's Leap and its winemaker, Warren Winiarski, are famous for being judged the best in the legendary "Judgement of Paris" tasting in 1976. Winarski, who is now 79, said it is time for him and his wife Barbara to retire.
